(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" is a 1974 song written by English singer/songwriter Nick Lowe and subsequently covered by Elvis Costello and Curtis Stigers Brinsley Schwarz by Lowe's band Brinsley Schwarz and released as a single; this version was included on Lowe's 2002 compilation Anthology (along with the Elvis Costello version), and his 2009 compilation Quiet Please.

Club in 2011, he originally intended the song to be tongue-in-cheek, only to rethink the tone along the way. I wrote the song in 1973, and the hippie thing was going out, and everyone was starting to take harder drugs and rediscover drink, he said. It all builds to the scorching common sense of the refrain: And each time I feel it slipping away, it just makes me want to cry/ What’s so funny about peace, love, and understanding. Elvis Costello’s 1978 hard-charging, heart-on-sleeve version of the song, which was produced by Lowe, brought it to a wider audience and became one of Costello’s best-known recordings. Lowe, however, probably preferred the 1992 version by Curtis Stigers.

Nick Lowe became a very successful producer and scored a hit as a solo artist with "Cruel To Be Kind. Club that this song started out as a joke: "I wrote the song in 1973, and the hippie thing was going out, and everyone was starting to take harder drugs and rediscover drink. Alcohol was coming back, and everyone sort of slipped out of the hippie dream and into a more cynical and more unpleasant frame of mind. You can laugh at me, but all I'm saying is, 'What's so funny about peace, love, and understanding?' And that was the idea of the song. But I think as I started writing it, something told me it was too good idea to make it into a joke. The film's soundtrack album went on to sell 44 million copies worldwide, landing Lowe a large royalty check that financed his less commercial music. Lowe told The Telegraph: "It was a tremendous piece of good fortune.
